Paula

Mike I can't help but notice that the quiz is still open......

The quiz will be closing in five - four - three - two - one

Houston we have a problem stop the countdown Mike, the Princess hasn't entered yet.

Latest update the countdown to quiz closure has stopped at the one second mark and we are on hold waiting for Team Sparkles to suit up and enter the Rocket of Quizdom.

This is unprecedented for the rocket of quiz closure to be stood down at such a late moment.

Paula
21-10-18, 03:48 PM

I'm waiting Flo though from your pm it looks like you mislaid the answers, I've got a copy of Paula's and Suzi's answers as text files using Notepad so if I lose the pm's in DWD then I've still got a copy unless my hard drive goes kaboom.

Edit: Flo I'll keep the quiz open until you enter can't let those young upstarts Suzi and Paula have it all their own way ;) (giggle)
